Temesia Tuicaumia is a persistent force in Fiji’s fashion industry.

A young fashion designer, he is the brand founder and designer of Temesia.Co.

Although his fashion line is new to the industry, his timeless designs are a testament of his unrelenting efforts.

Born in Suva, Mr Tuicaumia moved to Hawaii, United States of America to pursue his tertiary education.

Upon his return to Fiji in 2015, Mr Tuicaumia found solace in the pursuit of finding Fiji’s rare beauties and sharing it with the rest of the world.

As such, he started posting video content on the social media platform, Instagram account known as temesia.fjtraveller.

Having traveled numerous places across the globe, Mr Tuicaumia’s fashion line creates a bridge between the vibrance of the island life and the practicality of ‘concrete jungles.’

 

What Are Your Hobbies?
My hobbies definitely is restaurant hopping with friends and if it’s a band night at any restaurant, I am there.

 

How Many Places Have You Visited So Far In Fiji?
I have visited quite a lot of places, even dirt roads that I was not too sure about!

But I always did end up with an amazing panoramic view or a dead end!

 

What Is The One Spot You Would Take Every Visitor To, And Why?
It would definitely be the Navua river rafting – it was an unforgettable experience.

I was also educated on the village’s histories by the river, the myths about the river, educated on climate change and deforestation.

It was an amazing adventure of six to eight hours with my friends.

What Is Your Favourite Secret Backyard Spot?
My secret backyard spot is the little Chinese eatery in Suva city called Lee Lee Restaurant where I have found the best Rourou mutton.

 

What Is Your Favourite Place In Fiji For A Coffee/Pie, And Why?
My coffee spots vary all year around.

I enjoy a place with aesthetics, good vibes, good music and of course amazing coffee.

So, in this season right now it is definitely Moments Café in Suva.

The kumquat pie and any coffee drink on their menu is amazing.

 

What Is The One Fiji Spot On The Top Of Your Bucket List?
The Captain Cook Cruise for the seven night Lau cruise to any pristine part of the Fiji group would be it.

Added bonus would be a visit to Qilaqila bay of islands known for its crystal clear aqua waters, reefs, amazing caves and mushroom shaped islands, or see extinct volcano craters on Fulaga or Totoya Islands.
